Okay, meanwhile, I'll just be hoping there'll ever be a way I can legally play the game, regardless of format.

The Pokemon movies. I still watch them every once in a while and still kind of enjoy them.

Oh wow... I know this will sound like the ever eternal repeat but next season looks terrible.
Although, I'm all for the Tiger & Bunny movie. Hell, I'd take an entire new season of that show =3

...there are more shows this season that I'm interested in than we've had the entire year, and I thought this was a pretty good year. =P

In addition to continuations of good shows, there's:

Magi
Robotics;notes
Little Busters
Hayate no Gotoku
Kyousogiga
Jojo
From the New World
Code: Breaker
Zetsuen no Tempest
Code Geass Gaiden
Yamato 2199
Evangelion 3

That's 9 shows, an OVA, and 2 movies. Okay, maybe a little short of surpassing every season combined, but still better than every season thus far, IMO.

Magical girls. ~_~

Doesn't seem like the kind of show for me. Thanks for answering Annubis.

I think the fact that you're not a Magical Girl fan would increase your chances of enjoying it. It kinda does a 180 on the genre. The fact that it has a focused plot already makes it different than 99% of the magical girl shows out there...

It already happened:

That is all... I just really needed to express how I've never played anything quite like this.... Nor do I suspect we'll ever see anything quite like it again and if you are like me it may just scratch an itch that is hard to reach with other titles.

Never heard of Sword Art Online?

...considering it was never known in English-speaking territories until just a few months ago, I'd be very surprised if he did hear of it before.

^The demo just came out today, actually.

Just played the demo today. I don't normally go for this type of game, but I've found it to be surprisingly pleasant so far. Even managed to perfect one song on Basic. I might pick up the game soon, though it's sold out on Amazon. Not in a rush, of course.

If you're in the US, it's actually on sale for $30 this week at GameStop.

If it's still on sale next week I'll get it, but I can't leave the house this week.

I just realized that all this time I've been confusing Shakugan no Shana for Higurashi. Shana actually looks interesting. And not horrifying. Might give it a shot someday.

I should also mention that I apparently had a mental block on Higurashi, since it took me approximately 4 hours to remember the title.

I seriously have to wonder if people claiming that there's no anime worth watching have actually looked...

Or they could have very limited tastes, but then that's their problem.

Yay Vile! And Raptor? Not Judah? Though I guess he could come later.

I was gonna say I'm surprised Record of Argest Wars 2 was well-liked by Dincrest, but reading his last post, I see there was always a good chance for it. I dunno if I'd ever pick it up, but I'm glad to know Idea Factory is improving.

Started Level E. Finally, an anime that doesn't totally suck shit these days.

I've talked bad about modern anime before, but as far as I can tell, there's still plenty of good shows out there, it's just, well, tougher to make out which ones those are when you don't have the luxury of retrospect. I watch anime from modern, all the way though to the early '80s, so that gives me about 30 years to sort through. It sure seems like a lot, but when I break it down by year, albeit just out of what I've seen, it's actually only 3-6 good shows per year on average, with a few really good years thrown in here and there (1997 was a good year, for instance).

Although it doesn't really help your case that it was originally written and nearly became an anime back in the mid-late 90s.

You obviously missed my point, which was that there are about as many good shows back then as there are now. Level E is but one example of that. Off the top of my head, since 2010 there have been SKET Dance, Tiger X Bunny, Hunter X Hunter, Madoka Magica, Gundam UC, Fate-Zero, Saint Seiya Omega, Angel Beats, AnoHana, Star Driver, Kids on the Slope, Ano Natsu...and that's just from what little I've seen, and going by my somewhat limited tastes. Plus Level E, that already averages out to about 4 a year, and I haven't watched much from this year yet.

I prefer larger scale stuff when it comes to Sci-fi, I think. I'd probably like Banners more.

It's hard to tell how good L-Gaim might be, when the only ones who have seen the show in its entirety are the guys on /m/Subs, the ones who are translating the show, and they can't stop insulting every show they do a release of. (Granted, it is 4Chan. I went back to /m/ for the first time in over a year, and I was ready to cry in about 5 seconds flat, no exaggeration)

Oh well, at least now they're almost done with both Braigar and L-Gaim, and once those are done, hopefully they can focus on Layzner, which has finally passed the 2/3 mark - only 11 more episodes left to go. Once that's fully subbed, all 4 of Ryosuke Takahashi's old school mecha anime will be in English, and I can watch them all at my leisure (Read: marathon them all at break-neck speed).
1305  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square Enix teasing potential TWEWY stuff? (Official countdown inside) on: August 27, 2012, 07:09:48 PM
TWEWY was mostly touch based anyways...I've heard pretty good impressions from those who have played it, too. Really, it looks like they put some real effort into it this time. I may actually get it now that they've reduced the screens to one, and if I play it on an iPad, I can play it with a bigger screen, hopefully making the action less cramped. I should ask if it has the Japanese voice track, though. The english voices weren't bad, but the characters attached to them were, so I'd rather go as long as possible without understanding the actual story again.

Off Topic, but I just read through the RPG Fan review of the DS version of TWEWY. I like the guarded praise it had. The reviewer obviously liked it, but understood that it had quirks that may not work for everybody. Makes me feel a little less crazy, since it seems like everyone else sees it as the best thing since sliced bread with no possible flaws whatsoever.
